Water Energy Nexus

Save water by saving energy.  Save energy by saving water. The inter-dependency between energy and water is an often unknown fact.   It makes sense when you think about it -electricity or other fuels are used to clean, move, and heat water from its source to our sinks. And water is used to cool and clean – key activities in making electricity and making most of the “stuff” we use.
Pretty much everything we use in our daily lives has an energy and water “cost.”  We just don’t think about it since things aren’t labeled with how much energy and water are used in their creation.
This program will examine the interrelationship between water and energy usage by following a drop of water from water provider through end user into waste treatment facility and discussing all the energy that is consumes along the way. Presenters will examine the challenges and opportunities that the nexus presents in delivering about 160 million gallons of water per day to about a million St. Louis County residents.
